The very edible Tom Selleck

My first ever crush was on Tom Selleck when he was Magnum PI (and we’re not talking the re-runs here). At the time, I was young enough not to know that man + red Ferrari = mid-life crisis, nor did I realise that his shorts were too short to be decent and too tight for healthy male fertility. I loved his moustache, his wicked wink, his Detroit Tigers baseball cap and his endless wardrobe of crazy Hawaiian shirts.

One year, our family went to Hawaii for a holiday. There we were, walking along a quiet part of Waikiki Beach when, no, it couldn’t be, Magnum PI was there on the sand in front of us. My tiny little heart pounded madly as we took photos of him shooting a scene with Rick at the beach bar they hung out at so much. I was in LURVE. Back at school, my teacher gave us a project to write on that dangerous topic of ‘anything you like’. I wrote mine on Magnum PI. How sad is that?

Years later, I still thought Mr Selleck was a bit of all right when he appeared in Three Men and a Baby, and Three Men and a Little Lady. When he finally made it to Friends as OCD-suffering Monica’s latest squeeze, I sat back in appreciation of his moustache-less face. Gosh, will I ever grow up?

So what’s this got to do with Epicurienne, travel and cooking? Someone has created The Tom Selleck Cake.

Get this:

Sometimes the world is simply TOO surreal.

    I’d feel very strange eating a piece of Tom Selleck.

    It’s just not right I tell ya!

    Pat – would that be the eyebrows or the chest hair (made from chocolate sprinkles, of course…)?

    Your crush was not apparently as big as my crush on him…cuz he didn’t wear a NY Yankees cap…he was from Detroit and wore a Detroit Tigers ball cap!! 😉 Thanks for the blog though, you brought back some wonderful memories of that show for me!!

    Thanks for the tip. I’ve changed my post. Ah, the error of my ageing memory – such facts now elude me!
    Also good to know I wasn’t the only one with a crush on the luscious Mr Selleck!

    Tom Selleck is a direct descendant of the American Revolution!
